Kingdom Falconry is based and located at Crag caves, Castle-island, Co. Kerry, 2km from the Town.

They offer you the unique opportunity to get up close and personal with a variety of very majestic and awe-inspiring birds of prey.

The photos here are of a pair of Harris hawks.

I had a chance to get a private viewing of these Hawks and to take them on a “Hawk walk” around the grounds at Crag caves.

It was a fantastic experience and one I will not forget for a long time, just to get close to these birds of prey and learn lots about them and get to know their unique nature was very special.

Kingdom Falconry can be contacted from this link.

If you are in county Kerry and near Castle-island and have sometime , I would very much recommend dropping in to meet these birds.
